Mary A. Evans Memorial Fund for the Greencastle Presbyterian Church


The primary purpose of the Fund shall be to provide financial support for the activities and programs of the Greencastle Presbyterian Church, a non-for-profit agency under Code 509 (a) (1), 509 (a) (3), organization.


The fund was created from the estate of Mr. and Mrs. Evans who were residents of Greencastle in the early 20th century. The Evans were very involved at the Presbyterian Church during their time in Greencastle. In 1927 they made their first big contribution to the church in the form of a new organ when the old one burned in a fire. Mr. Evans died in 1910 but was survived by Mrs. Evans until her passing in 1935. Before Mrs. Evans passed she made a few large donations to the Church. Upon her death one-fourth of the remaining estate (after family) went to the Church Extension Board of the Presbyterian church, one-eighth to the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions, and a similar sum to the board of Home Missions, and the remaining one-half of the estate was to be placed under the care of the Central Trust Company of Greencastle to form the Mary A. Evans Memorial Fund, the income from which was to be given the Presbyterian church of Greencastle.

The responsibility of their estate was moved to the Community Foundation in 1996 when the big banks phased out their trust departments of the smaller banks they had taken over. Now the Evans are survived by this legacy at the Foundation which grants the Presbyterian Church money as needed.
